Extreme Halloween Network vs Find Costume

Extreme Halloween Network is a family-owned business that has been servicing customers online for over 10 years. That kind of market longevity is to be applauded.
Unfortunately, the Extreme Halloween Network website looks like it was created 10 years ago. In a Halloween-theme, they make widespread use of blacks, yellows, and reds. These color combinations make the site difficult to read and find what you're looking for. From an organization standpoint, the site looks like a hodgepodge of offerings. The costumes are organized by categories, much like the other sites in our review. However, there are categories listed down the left side, and other categories featured in the middle of the page, but they aren't the same ones. So where do you look to find the costume that you want? You have to hunt through the various categories, fighting the bright colors, until you find what you're after. They do provide a search bar, but that is halfway down the website.
If you can navigate to the categories, you'll find an ample selection. Costumes are grouped by Adult, Child, Teen, Baby, and Plus sizes. Within these categories they have a variety of subcategories; for example under Adult they have 19 groupings including funny, couples, and sexy. They also have an impressive assortment of costume accessory categories; there are several categories of wigs and 26 groupings of masks.
Costume prices were consistently among the lowest we found in our review; it's obvious that Extreme Halloween Network cares about bringing quality merchandise to their customers at affordable prices. They also offer same-day shipping for orders received before 2pm est.
Extreme Halloween Network accepts returns on most items if they are made within 5 days of delivery. Returns are subject to a 15% restocking fee. Returns are not accepted for orders placed between October 15th and November 1st.
Extreme Halloween Network provides 15 answers to frequently asked questions under their Customer Service area. Many of these answers contain links to other sections of their website with more detailed information. They also supply a toll-free number if you can't find the answers you're looking for.
One of the unique features of Extreme Halloween Network is their links to other costume websites. If you're looking for Easter Bunny costumes, western wear, wigs, luau costumes, Mardi Gras costumes, Santa suits, or costumes for cats and dogs, you can find links to them here.
If you can withstand the frustrating colors, confusing organization, and general lack of professionalism, Extreme Halloween Network has a good selection of costumes and low prices. Their website is need of an overhaul to make it more user-friendly.
Advertising that we could "find the perfect costume in half the time", we were hopeful that Find Costume would help us do just that. And, with a perfect A+ rating at the Better Business Bureau under FC's parent company, Future Memories, we expected an excellent experience. We were disappointed.
Yes, prices are low at Find Costume. We found that the costumes they carry are usually the same price as or lower than what their competitors are selling. Also, at the time of our review, there was a coupon code at the top of the page offering a discount of 5%.
Find Costume's selection is average. We looked at the page showing the year's top costume trends and found several costumes that were outdated - definitely not this year's hottest costumes. We also saw on the main page showing group costumes, one of the featured costumes was for a children's TV show that has been off the air for several years, and not likely to be a theme that adults today would want to wear.
What about shipping? How does Find Costume compare? That's a great question. FC has no posted shipping policy, leaving it as an unknown until a shopper actually puts something in the cart and enters their shipping information. We found that on a $20 costume, the shipping costs were $6.95. When we increased our order to $60, the shipping costs were $8.95. There was no way to know how much Find Costume charges for orders of other sizes, short of putting more items in our cart.
Find Costume's return policy is not customer-friendly. If you buy a costume in the month of October, it is non-returnable, no exceptions. Any other time of the year, you'll pay a 20% restocking fee - or a 10% restocking fee if you want an exchange instead. And, by the way, there are no returns or exchanges on "masks, hats, costumes with hats, bodysuits, shoes, costumes with asks, or mascot costumes".
What's worse, Find Costume has a disclaimer that blames the manufacturer if the costume you receive isn't like what's pictured on the site. We found one customer review describing how she ordered a firefighter costume for a boy made out of plastic/neoprene materials and instead received a toddler-sized costume made out of polyester - but Find Costume accepted no responsibility for the difference from what they advertised.
Shopping for your Halloween outfits at Find Costume could be a scary experience, full of tricks and few treats. We strongly recommend you consider a better-ranked retailer for your Halloween costume shopping.
